    Yup, that's been just about my entire career. The jobs don't require brains anymore, they don't pay like jobs that require brains.
  2. Second this. These aren't the positions of the...

    Second this. These aren't the positions of the right, this is a strawman argument.
  3. No. At most it's showing that someone else is...

    No. At most it's showing that someone else is also corrupt. That's not a defense. An an honest court it would be immediately blocked as irrelevant.
  4. No. you have $3M in assets and $800k in debt for...

    No. you have $3M in assets and $800k in debt for a net of $2.2 million. The mortgage doesn't negate the fact the house is an asset.

    The usual scenario for negative net worth without being an...
  5. And I suppose we shouldn't allow cars to anyone...

    Are you seriously arguing that people should be allowed to have access to stronger weapons that cause more harm and create a greater chance at collateral damage because... those people lack proper...
  6. That's not an answer.

    Want more income? Provide more value to your employer![/QUOTE]

    Who determines value? It's in the interest of the employer to downplay value, that way they pay less and increase profits.

    When...

    Note that the overthrow of the Shah was not a good thing for the people of Iran.



    And look what happened with our support for democratic factions. The Arab "spring" was more like winter--a bad...
  8. Here the law depends on the location. ...

    In most localities, no. And why do you assume he 'wore a wire'?
    [/QUOTE]
    Videos with meaningless chat are not that interesting. And I don't know the laws concerning private people wearing wires...
  9. Ebola is a body fluid vector disease--while quite...

    I think I can say without an ounce of hyperbole, that this is the most frightening turn of events in the history of mankind. I can't see any way how this won't end in a terrible and cataclysmic way....

    I'm picturing a certain rock, right next to the trail--it's full of ocean-type fossils. By your logic sea level must have been at least that high. While I have never checked the elevation there I...

    And how does this not just drive business to foreign manufacturers?

    Bullshit. It's to make sure the poor can't vote. [/Quote]

    Has it occurred to you folks that both can be true at the same time? Voter ID laws make logical sense. Shenanigans like making it harder...
  14. No. They use the weapons they have practiced...

    So, you're seriously arguing that during a hijacking situation, where the plane is on the ground and they have plenty of time to plan their assault strategy, decide to disguise themselves as airplane...
  15. I asked what relevant question they could ask. ...

    Yeah. What relevant question could they ask of Biden?[/QUOTE]

    "Did you put pressure on that company to hire your son?"

    Under oath he would probably have to admit that he did. It might be...
  16. It doesn't matter if Biden is as guilty as sin,...

    It doesn't matter that Biden is not as guilty as Trump, even only 1/100 as guilty.

    He's named (identified) in the indictment as part of the reason Trump is accused of something. Trump's defenders...
  17. People are obsessed with trying to show America...

    And even if it isn't, fuck them. They're obviously trusting the data put out by the Chinese government. Sorry, but I've seen homeless in China--not to the level we see it here because the...
  18. Want more income? Provide more value to your...

    Since only about 1% are at minimum wage as it is it's unlikely we would see many below it even if there was no minimum wage. In high wage areas there is nobody at minimum wage, removing it there...

    Actually, it wouldn't be a problem. The key is you don't use the caps themselves, you grab pieces that have already come off. They'll melt soon anyway, harvesting them has basically zero effect. ...
  20. How much of this cleanup is real, though? ...

    How much of this cleanup is real, though?

    China does things like simply decree the air quality is not too bad, and prohibit people from reporting information to the contrary. Related, there's a...

    Where are the core faiths of the "religions" you cite?[/QUOTE]
    Well, that's the beauty of your method. You just call something "the religion of communism", and now it is a religious...

    Yeah. I don't care about finding a nutter in a campaign unless the campaign should have known better. (Now, if you find a whole bunch of nutters that strongly suggests they should have known...

    Huh?

    We are saying that you don't capture spies with diplomatic cover, period. If the claim in the OP is true he's way, way out of line. At the moment that the hostages came under control of the...

    My first thought, also.

    Turns out no. They were just spitballing that line.
